Fast, eco-friendly junk removal and dumpster rental in Cincinnati
Meet the Owner
Jack Brendamour and Judy McCreary are owners of Junk King Cincinnati, providing professional junk removal services to households and businesses. Jack and Judy deeply care about the environment as well as being able to support local nonprofits by donating the items they remove. Their passion fits in perfectly with the Junk King philosophy.
“Donating items we remove from yards, homes or businesses is the most important aspect of our efforts. If items can’t be donated, we then look to recycle. Everything about Junk King helps our customers, employees and local community,” added Jack.
Customers continue to need a consistent hauling solution, and Junk King is there to do the job. Businesses in particular like the idea of not having to lift a finger. All they have to do is point to the junk and our local junk removal team does the heavy lifting. Another goal Jack and Judy have is to help seniors and their families going through the stage in life when transitioning is necessary. Downsizing is difficult for everyone, and Junk King can help seniors that may need to get rid of a lifetime of accumulated items.
“Recycling and donating to nonprofits plays a vital role in our commitment to providing our customers with the greenest methods for junk removal. We recycle up to 100% of the junk we haul,” said Judy. In fact, Jack and Judy operate their own recycling centers in each city they are located in. This also allows them to sort and process any unwanted materials more efficiently.
Junk King Cincinnati was originally founded in 2011 by Judy’s husband, Pete McCreary, whom was a man of integrity and led a mentorship centered culture. Pete would say, “I love the business of helping others de-clutter responsibly.” The company continues to keep Pete’s core values alive and build upon his integrity driven vision. He would always do what was best for the greater good which Jack, Judy and the rest of the Junk King Cincinnati team has continued to do and prides themselves on. The pictured decal below rides on the back of every truck and dumpster so Pete can be part of every job forever.
Junk King Cincinnati has made a name for itself by being professional and providing eco-friendly recycling and award-winning customer service. Examples of items any customer can ask Junk King to haul are: appliances, furniture, mattresses, televisions, refrigerator/freezers, construction waste, electronic waste, or foreclosure cleanouts. They also tear down sheds and playsets as well as remove hot tubs, basketball poles and yard waste.
Professionally, Junk King Cincinnati is proud to have been awarded Junk Kings’ Most Outstanding Franchise several times over the last decade, and winning the Sharonville Chamber of Commerce’s Small Business of the year award in 2015. Jack, Judy and their team are continuing to offer the Cincinnati community affordable green junk removal services day in and day out.

Residential Junk Removal
Everyone has junk to get rid of from time to time and it can be a challenge.
And this is true for most homeowners and renters all over the Cincinnati area when they have unwanted items they need to dispose of. But we’re not talking about trash or old magazines that have piled up in the den. We mean junk – big junk, lots of junk, or hard to move junk.
But how can folks do that?
Good news! The team at Junk King Cincinnati is ready to take just about every type of residential junk item you can think of – and that includes the junk you need to get rid of right now!
We come to your home and haul away old furniture, large toys, boxes of old magazines, newspapers, and most other household items. In fact, we take just about everything and anything you need to dispose of (except for hazardous waste.)
We are passionate about junk removal and eco-friendly junk disposal. As co-owner Jack Brendamour puts it,
“I got into this business because we truly have at our fingertips the ability to give so much back to our local community and, in addition to that, keep things out of the landfills.”
Jack also understands the importance of community and adds,
“We take that extra step to do what’s right, and really be a community first company.”
So, what kinds of things do we help you get rid of? Here’s a brief overview of some of our residential junk removal services.
Items We Take – Residential Items
Yard Waste Removal
Cleaning up yard waste can often mean far more than just removing grass clippings and leaves. It can also mean hauling away everything else you’ve cut, pruned, trimmed, or dug up out of your yard. Along with that, there can be other debris such as leftover lumber, broken-down gardening equipment, old fencing, and other items.
Outdoor cleanups or landscaping makeovers can become big projects and you can pile up far more yard waste and debris than your residential recycling bin can manage.
Yard waste removal can be a seasonal chore, as well, such as cleaning up after a winter of general neglect or getting rid of things that have been left outdoors all summer. But taking all this yard waste to a landfill can take time and a great deal of work. Not to mention that you need a suitable vehicle for the job.
It can be difficult to get rid of old furniture, like when you’re moving or replacing pieces, for example. That’s because most furniture pieces are heavy, bulky, and generally hard to move. And when you finally get them out of the house you still must figure out what to do with them.
But with Junk King Cincinnati hauling off your old furniture for you, not only do you free yourself from the hard work, you’ll also be helping the environment as we recycle your old furniture pieces.
Here are some of the types of old or unwanted furniture we can pick up from you:
Television Disposal & Recycling
Did you get a new flat screen TV for Christmas? So did millions of other Americans. And that means that there are potentially millions of “old” TVs screens out there that need to be gotten rid of. But what’s the best way to dispose of televisions that either don’t work or no one wants?
One easy option is to call Junk King Cincinnati for your old television disposal and recycling. And we can pick up and haul off those old computer monitors and old CRT televisions, as well as the large flat screen units. Junk King provides safe and environmentally friendly television disposal service to make the whole process easy for you.
Appliances get old, break down, and must be replaced. And that means they have to be removed and disposed of, as well. The good news is that Junk King can handle that for you!
Here’s a short list of the types of appliances we can remove for you:
- Air Conditioners
- Dishwashers/Trash Compactors
- Water Heaters
- Washing Machines/Dryers
Have you ever found yourself wondering how to get rid of an old appliance? If so, you were likely planning a trip to the landfill. But did you know that most large junk items that you might dispose of in a landfill can actually be recycled?
Your old household appliances, for example, are almost all made of recyclable materials like steel, aluminum, glass, and plastics. And almost all your old appliances can be recycled. That’s why, when you call Junk King Cincinnati, we make sure that as much junk as possible is recycled – and that includes refrigerators, ovens, and even air conditioning units!
In addition to all these services, we offer additional residential junk removal services such as:
Commercial Junk Removal
Businesses have to get rid of junk, too.
In fact, one might say that commercial enterprises generate far more junk each year than residential homeowners or renters. And these companies and other entities need junk removal services as well.
And, if you are a business owner or a manager tasked with junk removal, you understand the frustration. Oftentimes, the junk you need to get rid of is far more than what you can fit into the trash or recycling dumpsters you have.
And, while your waste management provider can usually arrange for a special “bulk item” pick up, this service usually comes with additional fees. And you often must make an appointment for the pick up.
This might work for two or three times a year, but if you require commercial junk removal much more frequently, this arrangement isn’t practical.
In other words, you need to find another option.
And, for most commercial junk disposal, there are just two options for getting rid of large junk or debris:
- You do it yourself, or
- You hire someone to do it.
And the fact is that “doing it yourself” may not even save you money. Sure, you’re not paying a vendor to take care of it, but your employee’s time is needed to do the job and, as all owners and managers know, time is money.
In fact, your real cost is doubled because all that time spent loading, hauling, and dumping your company’s junk is time taken away from doing the actual work your employees are paid to do. In other words, every “dump run” includes loss of productivity, which is costing you money.
The good news is that Junk King Cincinnati specializes in providing efficient and cost-effective commercial junk removal services.
Commercial Junk Removal Services for Cincinnati
Commercial Equipment Removal
Every business decision involves expenditures that need to be carefully considered. And old equipment removal is no exception since hauling unwanted equipment will involve some costs.
Some larger firms may have the resources to manage this task themselves. But the size or volume of most commercial equipment makes hauling and removing it a challenge for many smaller businesses. Most commercial equipment is large, unwieldy, and heavy.
Which is why the best approach is to outsource the work to a professional firm like Junk King Cincinnati.
Office Furniture Removal
Oftentimes, old office furniture is too damaged to sell or donate. In those situations, you may decide to dispose of it all. However, hauling it all out of your facility can be far more work than most businesses want to take on.
However, a professional team from Junk King Cincinnati can quickly and easily do all the heavy lifting and haul it all away for you. We offer efficient, affordable, and eco-friendly office furniture removal so you don’t need to worry about disposing of your old furniture items.
Hiring Junk King to pick up your old office furniture is a smart choice since there’s no easy way to do it yourself.
And the best part is that we also make sure that old furniture items are either donated when possible or sent to a recycling facility to ensure that your old furniture is disposed of in an environmentally responsible way.
Construction Debris Removal
Construction contractors and project managers must proactively manage every phase of a project. And construction debris removal should be managed and planned for, as well.
A professional solution is to outsource the job to a reputable, professional hauling company like Junk King Cincinnati. And, like other commercial junk or debris removal tasks, the benefits of this approach will far outweigh those of doing it yourself.
This includes not having to take crew members off the job to spend their time cleaning and hauling junk and construction debris. And the cost is typically far less than using your own crew as well, especially when you factor in opportunity costs.
Property Management Cleanouts
Property management often involves getting vacant properties rented or leased again. And often this means that vacated properties must have any junk removed and the property cleaned before it can be rented again.
Unfortunately, not every former tenant leaves a commercial space clean and empty. Cleaning out empty properties, whether it’s commercial buildings, office spaces, or even houses and condos, can be difficult. And this falls on the property manager.
Fortunately, Junk King Cincinnati can make this aspect of property management far easier with quick and affordable property management cleanouts. Make Junk King your partner for cleaning out offices, apartments, and other rental properties in-between tenants.
For a variety of reasons, many prior occupants feel little need to leave their foreclosed home completely empty when they leave the property. As a result, foreclosed residential properties often require that any junk left by former homeowners must be cleaned out. And this often falls on the real professional.
Unfortunately, these foreclosed properties are often left with trash, abandoned furniture and other debris that the previous homeowners didn’t take with them. The good news is that Junk King Cincinnati really can be your best choice when taking on a foreclosure cleanout.
As the leading commercial junk removal service in North America, Junk King provides expert real estate junk removal services to take care of the cleanout process for you. Call Junk King for foreclosure cleanouts and get your property ready to sell or rent.
Commercial Scrap Metal Pick Up
While a business might want to recycle junk metal, that can be difficult if they don’t know how to go about it or where to take it. In fact, recycling scrap metal is a much more challenging task than recycling common commercial trash.
That’s not a problem when Junk King Cincinnati picks up and removes your scrap metal for you. We take it to local recycling facilities so that your metal debris can be made into new materials for manufacturing.
In fact, Junk King recycles more junk material than other junk removal companies and our scrap pick up services are any need.
Storage Facility Cleanouts
As many may know from reality TV programs, storage facility managers often discover large amounts of junk left behind by old tenants. Unfortunately, the task of getting rid of it all usually falls on them, as well.
While there may be an auction, the property manager must still dispose of any items that did not sell. More often than not, storage facility owners and managers must deal with abandoned junk.
Although the storage facility manager is left with clearing out abandoned units to put them back on the market, it doesn’t have to be that way. Junk King Cincinnati can quickly and easily take care of storage facility cleanouts. Best of all, we haul it away for one simple price, while making everything easy and stress-free for you.
How It Works
Working with Junk King is easy. And we work hard to keep it that way.
First, we take just about anything and everything that you need to get rid of other than hazardous materials. And, because of our long-standing and deep-rooted commitment to being “green” and eco-friendly, you can rest assured that we will recycle or repurpose as much of your junk materials as is possible.
This goal of reusing and recycling as much as possible was touched on in an interview with Junk King Cincinnati’s co-owner, Jack Brendamour,
“So, there’s stuff that people have held onto. The generation that’s [now] going into nursing homes or passing away held on to things for so many years because they went through times where you didn’t throw anything out. And it’s really neat.
[The] handicap equipment goes to Matthew 25 Ministries and paint does as well. We support Habitat for Humanity and take truckloads every single week. New light furniture hits my dock every week several times, as well. And there’s 40 or 50 of these nonprofits that need things that we get every single day.”

Why Junk King is Different

“Having people who care and being able to do what we do for the community and environment – that’s what creates that team. And so to get great people in the door, you have to have a good story to start with, and then you have to maintain that culture every single day. And that’s why Junk King is becoming one of the most loved brands in the world.”

Junk Removal FAQs
How does your junk removal work?
Junk removal typically takes one of two forms. There is full-service junk removal, where you hire 2-3 people to come into your home or office, carry your discards outside, load it into a dumpster or truck, and then haul it away.
This option is essentially like hiring movers, except that your stuff goes away forever instead of going to your new address.
An as co-owner Jack Brendamour points out,
“We’re very quick. if someone needs us within an hour, anywhere in the city – a property management company or whatever the situation may be – we can get somewhere very quickly.”
There is also self-service junk removal, which is like the renovation/contractor example mentioned above. With self-service junk removal, the junk company drops a dumpster off at your property, and you fill it yourself. Once the bin is full, the junk removal comes back to load your dumpster onto a truck and drive it away.
Are there any junk items you don’t take?
“If you have something in your yard, your home, or your business, that you need to get rid of – whether it be one item or 30 years worth of stuff – you call us and we’ll take care of it.”
– Scott Brendamour
And, while Junk King will pick up and remove almost any type of unwanted junk, there are items we are not allowed to pick up because they are considered hazardous materials.
Certain household items are categorized as hazardous waste and typically fall into one of four categories:
For example, many cleaning products, motor oil and most other automotive fluids, pesticides, herbicides, varnishes, and paints are all considered hazardous waste and should never be placed in trash bins or dumpsters. When you need to dispose of these items, you should contact your local waste management provider or municipal agencies for guidance.
What kinds of junk can you recycle?
The truth is that almost every type of junk item that gets tossed out or disposed of can be reused, repurposed, or recycled. And we strive to recycle up to 60 percent or more of everything we pick up from our customers.
Recyclable junk items include:
- Hot Tubs
- Old wood and lumber
- Televisions and Monitors
- And much, much more…
Does it cost more for heavy junk items?
Fair and transparent pricing is a hallmark of Junk King.
As Scott Brendamour puts it,
“There’s obviously ways you can do it a little cheaper than us, but if you want someone who’s on time, professional, and does what is right with the items, you call us. And we do what’s right. That’s the greatest part.”
Unlike most of our competitors, you only pay for the space your junk takes up in our trucks. This means that if your junk takes up half a truck load you pay the same whether it’s a load of old clothes and bedding, or concrete rubble and masonry.
Our pricing model is the same for our self-service MINI Dumpster rentals, as well. At Junk King, whether you choose our full or self-service junk removal options, you pay only for the space you use with no hidden fees and low minimum charge.
